A small back-up generator provides a back-up power source if needed for a party or DJ system.<BR><BR>Situated out in the garden, a little away from the main house, is a what we affectionally call "The Bird House" cottage.

The price is set at $50.00 per night.<BR><BR><BR>More

How to get there
To get to us, the best way is to turn left as soon as you arrive in Soufriere. You will see signs leading to the famous Soufriere Hot Springs. Follow them to the end. When the road takes a sharp turn to the left, go straight. You will see the sign for La Bou Cottage on your left hand side and the actual La Bou Office on your right hand side. Our number is 440-9059.
